"Today kids are looking for heroes," Coach Chuck said.  "Every day, I sat across from my Hero.  My Dad (David) provided for me and my brothers and sisters, and he only had one arm and one leg.  If I can help a kid out, why, that’s good.  Kids want help, and sometimes they don't know how to ask for it."  "Coaching styles change, and so do some approaches to the game, but I believe good kids run out bad kids.  Bad kids won't stick around good kids.  And I have been blessed with good kids through the years."
